Car News » Jeep Compass Owner Claims Warranty for Bubbles in Screen Protector Film, Denied

Follow on Google news and Telegram.

In a weird chain of events, a Jeep Compass owner couldn’t recognize that the bubbles visible on the touchscreen are actually on the screen guard and went to the dealership.

A Jeep Compass owner fell victim to an embarrassing tale when he thought that the bubbles on the screen protector of the infotainment system are actually on the screen itself. In fact, he went to the dealership to get the infotainment system replaced under warranty. What is even more hilarious is the fact that the dealership is refusing the replacement. We are not sure if the dealer is refusing it because he knows that there is no issue with the screen or for any other reason. Nevertheless, hilarity ensues on the internet after this incident as several social media users made fun of the ongoing discussion on a forum.

Jeep Compass Owner Complains About Bubbles On The Screen

This discussion was trending on a Team BHP forum where the Compass owner shared his apparent plight. He expressed his frustration that the dealer was not replacing the screen on his SUV. However, one member of the forum highlighted that it could be just the screen protector on which the bubble formation is quite normal. But the owner replied to him saying that he didn’t apply any screen protector on the touchscreen. Then he second-guesses himself and asks the member if it comes like that in the stock configuration. This proves that he was oblivious to the fact that the bubbles were formed only on the screen guard and not on the screen.
